European Japanese Exchange Projects in Nuclear Education and Training
The Post-Fukushima European Japanese Exchange Project in Nuclear Education and Training (EUJEP 2) is aiming to enhance the quality of Nuclear higher education and training by stimulating exchanges and internships at Master level between higher education and training institutions from EU and from Japan. The project includes the mutual exchange of 20 students, 8 EU faculty members and 18 Japanese faculty members.
Period: 36 months from October 10th 2014 to September 30th 2017.
EUJEP 2 will promote bilateral study/training programmes and internship mobility based on mutual recognition of periods of study and awarded credits and of existing E&T programmes in nuclear disciplines. It will support the mobility of professionals (teaching and administrative staff) with a view to improving mutual understanding of, and expertise in Nuclear E&T issues relevant to Nuclear Safety, Safety Culture and Management of Nuclear Installations after the Fukushima accident. EUJEP 2 will improve current practice to prepare students for work in an international context and it will set up a framework for student mobility with full recognition of the study/training period abroad. In the long term, the impact of this young generation is expected to benefit to the safe design, construction and operation of nuclear power plants and to the implementation of nuclear and radiation technologies with respect to their sustainability, their reliability and their safety aspects.
